Food Round-up

The largest meal I make every week is for Sabbath dinner on Friday nights, and generally I don’t share it here since I’m not taking pictures after sundown on Friday night.  Much of the meal was not out yet, but I did snap a couple pictures of appetizers this past week, so you can check [...]

How to go Vegan (or Vegetarian)and be Healthy

So this is a post that I promised a friend a while back, and have had trouble getting around to, even though I think it’s a great idea  It just seemed to me like it would take so much darn EFFORT.  But it’s important, so I’m going to give it my best shot. Whenever someone [...]

Pineapple Fried Rice

Thursday night we ordered out for Chinese, although I’d really wanted Thai.  While there’s a great Thai place nearby that does take out, they don’t deliver, and the way I was feeling, I wasn’t getting out of bed to go pick up my food anywhere, they were bring it to me.  As a consolation prize, [...]

A RAW Contest Entry

If you haven’t visited lately, Lindy-Loo over at Yeah That Vegan Shit is having a contest. With some cookbooks up for the taking, the idea is to make some rocking nips out of food, and I had to give this a shot.  You should consider that your censored warning for the pictures in this entry.  [...]

Strawberry Pesach Cake

This is the delicious strawberry snack cake from FatFree Vegan Kitchen made Passover friendly and rather gooey.  Once I’d tried this I kept trying to describe it…and coming up with gooey.  Gooey really isn’t a bad thing…I love it when my yoga teacher calls our latter downward facing dogs “gooey” and this cake was the [...]

Carrot Bisque and Cornmeal Blueberry Sunshine Muffins

This was another VwaV night, and as has been my experience with the cookbook, a total success. I’d never made a carrot soup before, but decided it was high time to give it a try, and I’m happy that I did. This actually reminded me a lot of baby food, which is totally not a [...]

Banana-Orange Oatmeal Pancakes

I love waking up on a sunday morning and having plenty of time to shuffle around in my pjs and come up with something delicious for breakfast, there’s just nothing I find more relaxing. Better yet, my sister and her guy were here this weekend, and unbeknown to the happy omnivores, I fed them Vegan [...]

Sphagetti Squash Mexican Fiesta with Avocado Salsa Fresca

…or something like that. There’s not a whole lot I can say about this….It was a a V’con recipe…I didn’t like it. Okay, that’s not totally true…I loved the fruit salsa component…the whole Mexican bean stuff underneath was nasty….or at least that’s my opinion on the matter. Selah.

Schnitzel and Fruit “cups”

Way back before I went Veggie, one of my favorite foods that my mother cooked was schnitzel…essentially chicken patties, breaded and then baked. That doesn’t sound very exciting…but somehow, it IS. In Israel you can buy “vegetarian schnitzel” at every run of the mill grocery store, and it is generally full of corn or some [...]

Challah Bread Pudding

Since I’m on a roll with the high-fat cooking (Just so you know…I’ve spent more than enough time in the gym the last couple days to counterbalance) I decided to make the remaining challah into bread pudding. I used the recipe found at the Amish Kitchen and while my thighs may not appreciate it, my [...]
